Here are the original stories and adoption
information about those dogs who came to us as a result of abuse or
abandonment, and have been placed in permanent homes during 2015.

and Ruby ***Adopted
These two beautiful pups are now known as Chloe and Ruby!! Their new owners were smart enough to realize
that two is easier than one! They
will keep each other company and sleep together even though it sounds
like they are being shared by the two children. We are so happy to know how great they
are doing and so grateful they got to stay together!
Josephine, one of our Lab/Retriever pups, went off to her new
family! She has four children to
shower her with love and a canine sister at home. Josephine was one of the shy pups, and
took to this family right away. They
wrote that she is doing great. However,
the one thing I forgot to tell them is that she is perfect!!
Adopted*** Piper ***Adopted
When Piper's new owner saw her picture it was love at
first sight. He lives alone and
recently got out of the military, and needed a companion! Piper seemed to fit the bill
perfectly. He likes to run, and so
does she, she likes to chew up lots of things like shoes, and he doesn't
seem to mind too much. She likes to snuggle and so does he!
They both like to watch TV. She goes
to the dog park while he goes to work, and they look forward to their
nights together. We all wondered why
Piper had not been adopted, but now we know. The right person had not come
along, but he finally did!!
Piper is (now) a
38 lb, female, Jack Russell Terrier mix. She is spayed, making progress on house
breaking, up to date on shots and a real cutie. Piper was abandoned at a house with just
a bag of food sitting next to the fence. How anyone could leave this
precious little dog is incomprehensible, but they did. Fortunately she was discovered and ended
up at the pound in a Missouri town.
Piper jumped on the back of the bus headed to Topeka with Bentley
from the same pound and is residing here until her forever home shows
Adopted*** Walter ***Adopted
I was beginning
to give up hope that I would get my very own family. Don't get me wrong, I had a blast at
SCARS chasing squirrels and birds, but longed for a one on one relationship. First I was brought into a shelter in
Kansas as a cruelty case. Then my
brother and I got adopted and he was hit by a car, so my family returned
me. I was languishing in a shelter
when Maureen saw me and took me to SCARS.
I was having fun there when a nice family decided to take me home to
their 500 acres. I had a
brother dog there too,
but we ran off and I supposedly killed a chicken and returned. In truth, he attacked me first. Back to SCARS where I had a bug bite that
almost did me in. Finally, a family
came along who loved me for myself in spite of my scabs! I am now firmly settled in with my bro, Leonidis, and a huge yard that I have claimed as my
territory. My days are spent giving squirrels "the business" and
either sleeping in the sun, or on my orthopedic bed in the bedroom. All is well in Oz!
finished reading a wonderful book by Dave Barry on Walter, a blonde
lab he had as a boy. Walter
came to his family at Christmas and saved them all from despair after
losing their family dog to old age.
We lost our Madison of 15 years to cancer this week, and
now here comes a blonde lab who needs a home and I am calling him Walter!!
He is an 80 lb, neutered and
housebroken, male blonde Lab mix. He
loves other dogs but has been banished because he killed some
chickens. SO!!! If you have
chickens roaming around, please do not consider Walter. If you have other dogs, kids and a lot of
love to give that will be returned, Walter is your boy!
Adopted*** Reggie ***Adopted
When I first saw
Reggie's picture at a dog adoption day in KC, I fell in love with his
face. He was wearing a darling blue
back pack and his crooked grin was adorable. I read that he was "out of
time" due to his hyper personality.
On the other hand, I would be hyper too in a cage for months after
being left at shelter by my owner.
We brought him here and, indeed, his energy level was high...he
could outrun the Gator zooming around our 50 acres. Months went on and no applications on
this cutie...until one day I got the perfect email and I said "Reggie,
you have just hit pay dirt!" The
rest is history. He is now in the loving arms of a family of four!
They love him and send pictures of him and their kids and their
poodle in various situations, not the least of which was in a school
classroom!!! Thanks to everyone who played a part in his rescue, he would
have been a terrible loss.
Reggie is a darling two year old, male, Boxer mix. He is neutered and housebroken and great
with other dogs and kids. Reggie was
posted on the internet as "out of time" and unless a rescue took
him, he was in danger of being euthanized in a few days due to his
high energy level. I know dogs need
far more exercise than they get in shelters, and many private homes. I felt if he came here and
ran our 50 acres he would settle down and indeed he has. He is still energetic, but sleeps like a
log and has a really cute crooked smile.
In addition, he has become protective, so anyone who adopts him will
know they are safe when he is around.
We can only speculate about his mix. Sometimes I see a hint of Great
Dane with his lanky legs. He weighs about 70 lbs
and has won all hearts here.
Adopted*** Mya ***Adopted
Another great Easter present!!
We are so happy that Mya is getting glowing reports and the family
loves her and wants to keep her.
She has two little girls to love her, two puppy pals, a big yard and
lots of people around. What could be
a better home for this little cutie??
Mya is a year old shepherd mix of some sort!! She weighs 28 lbs,
is spayed and housebroken. Mya is
loving and sweet and has "rabbit fur" it is so soft. She is a bundle of energy. Mya can outrun any dogs here at SCARS and
leave the Gator behind! She was on a
chain during the day and has a lot of pent up energy. She will retrieve a tennis ball until you
are too exhausted to throw it any longer! Mya loves kids and plays great
with other dogs and will be a fun and wonderful companion!
Adopted*** Candy ***Adopted
Today I got my
best Easter present ever...my very own home!!! When I was showing off at PetsMart a really nice family came to see me and
decided to make me their own!
Today they came to get me at SCARS and I wore my best Easter collar
for my celebration. I am going to
live happily ever after and that is a promise.
Candy is a beautiful 12 lb, spayed,
housebroken Chihuahua. Candy is 2
years old, housebroken, and great with everyone. She is loving and sweet and needs someone
to cuddle her and give her lots of attention. Somehow she ended up on
Craig's list which can be very worrisome so a kind young woman took her
in. However, she was unable to keep
her as she had several dogs of her own and works full time. Whoever gets this darling dog will hit
